In a not-all-so-surprising story, it has come to someone’s attention that our Government has issued a Study of a Study about Studies. No, I’m not making that up.
Yes, in 2010, the Pentagon was inundated with so many studies that it commissioned a study to determine how much it cost to produce all those studies.
The GAO (governement accounting office) has reviews the Pentagon’s study and concluded in a report that it’s a flop. A dud. A waste of time and money. In other words, business as usual on Capitol Hill.
The study of a study of studies to be studied by those who commission studies on the study of studies has been ongoing for two years and there’s no end in sight. Congress asked the GAO to look into it and then they themselves would look into what they had the GAO look into about this study of studies being studied for studious folks.
Look, I don’t expect a hell of a lot from my government, and this isn’t totally shocking in any way, but damn. Just…damn.
